> Tom,
           if this is our goal - *"can return wrong query answers, but
should not corrupt the heap data.*" and if we make Thick indexes capable of
that, can i consider that as a thumbs up from your side? As you may already
know, this will only happen when there is a volatile function based index.

          Please let me know, if you feel otherwise.
